Walt and I had been to Ussé 10 years before CHM and I went there in 2010. We were staying in a gîte in Vouvray with our late friend Cheryl. It was our second trip to the the Loire Valley. Cheryl spent a week with us, and CHM spent the second week with us. We did a lot of driving around and saw many sights. Two years later, we were living here. As you can see, the Château d'Ussé is quite an attraction. Fine furnishings. Period costumes. Horse-drawn carriages. A chapel. Wine cellars. French gardens. And Flemish tapestries.
